PSG Forward Neymar Out Of Ligue 1 Action Until 2021

Neymar wasn't there for the season opener following a positive coronavirus test and missed the third and fourth league games following a red card in ‘Le Classique' as PSG lost at home to Marseille.

L'Equipe are now reporting that an injury sustained last Sunday at Reims will see the former Barcelona forward ruled out of the forthcoming match against Angers.

The PSG striker picked up a knock at the end of the win away to Stade de Reims and his injury enforced absence could coincide with a further sanction when the LFP Discipline Committee study the case tomorrow Wednesday 30 September against the striker for alleged racial insults aimed at Marseille's Sakai with Spanish defender Álvaro González allegedly on the end of homophobic abuse from the striker.

Neymar could face a league ban of up to ten matches and if this were the case, PSG would not be able to count on the Brazilian's services in Ligue 1 through to next year.
